Overnight holiday visits - the at home experience

Overnight and holiday visits

Metropolis offers "home away from home" care for select dogs, depending on availability.  Due to the number of our own dogs, we limit the number of dogs accepted, and prefer dogs we have bred.  This enables us to provide the same standard of care as we do with our own dogs, and the same living arrangements.  Our dogs are exercised daily, are primarily outdoors during the day with a range of activities, and are indoors in the evening.  We are happy to answer any questions you may have about these services. 

 Feedback from owners who regularly board their vizslas with us includes:

I wanted to provide you with some feedback on some of the changes I've noticed in Luna since she has been boarding at Metropolis and participating in shows.  The first has to be her excitement levels.  As we both know, Luna is a very energetic and excitable puppy so I've noticed she has really calmed down since boarding with you.  She still gets excited but now manages to relax more, which makes a big difference.  I think the time she spends with your dogs as a member of the pack teaches her to calm down, behave and learn from your other dogs.  The socialisation for her is great and it is evident how much fun she has each time.

Friends who had looked after Luna overnight in the past have commented the change in her, instead of running around sniffing their house for two hours (!) and not settling, she recently arrived, briefly sniffed around and then relaxed on her bed. Such an improvement.

 I know when she goes to Metropolis she is always incredibly well looked after and her training and discipline is continued....Luna no longer rushes through doors and is jumping up less so thanks for aiding her training. Your advice has been invaluable!


We  recently left our four-legged humanoid Vizsla for several months at Metropolis Vizslas for personal reasons...Being a Vizsla owner meant 'separation anxiety' was quite one sided (yes, you guessed it right...our boy was great...)....From weekly 'selfie'pictures to daily runs to making himself quite at home (literally), we took great comfort in knowing that Robyn ensured his physical and emotional needs were very well catered to!

Being in his 10th Vizsla year, Mossimo is a staunch member of our family, and so I write this support letter to any other Vizsla owners who, for whatever reason, need respite and a fine home, to allow the owners some time to themselves....

 Keep up the good work Robyn!
